Part 1. Spotify Playlist Limit - What You Should Know

spotify playlist limit

Spotify has long been criticized for the song limit on library and playlists. Although they’ve now removed the cap from user libraries, you still won’t be able to integrate all your song collections of more than 10,000 songs into one playlist and stream them.

Spotify now has the number of users of more than 280 million as at March 31, and it says there’re approximately 1% of the users will hit the Spotify playlist track limit, which is around 2.8 million. This large amount of users will receive a message telling them they’re not able to add songs to the playlist anymore and they’ll have to removes some songs if they really want to do so.

Some of them may try to download songs from playlists and turn all these files into one folder and stream them, however, when it rains, it pours. They run up against the trouble with a song downloading limit, and moreover, those downloaded songs can only be played on Spotify. And then again, they can not be all played under one playlist.

Why Spotify set the limit on the number of songs from playlists?

Actually, since 2014, there had been more than ten thousand votes for the request to remove this limit. But for some technical reasons and maybe Spotify thought there might not be so many users that could hit the song limit, and so they’re not paying attention to take care of all of its users. They’re focusing on rolling out more new features and variety of songs for that 99% of users to make more business sense rather than ditching the song limit for only that 1%.

Thankfully, there're some alternative ways to increase Spotify playlist limit, and there's also a tool to help achieve some of them.

Part 2. Use Liked Songs Feature to Increase Playlist Song Limit

"Liked Songs" with Unlimited Items:

Spotify's like songs feature gives you an option to add as many items as you want to the "Liked Songs" playlist. However, it's not usual for music fans to mess up their Liked songs on Spotify. Don't worry though, you still have 2 more options in this post.

If you want to add UNLIMITED items to one Spotify playlist, open the Spotify app on your device. Then go to the Spotify content's profile to like the song by pressing on the heart icon or "Save to your Liked Songs" button.

After that, go to the side menu of the desktop app and go into the "Liked Songs" tab, then you'll view and access all the songs you saved to this "Liked Songs" playlist. On mobile, go to Your Library instead to scroll to "Liked Songs" playlist, then all the items are synced to the same place on Spotify.
